It really is not easy being on camera, it is funny how it brings out my insecurities. But there are times in life you have to push yourself out of your comfort zone. So this week I decided for my Friday Reflections link up I would take the challenge of filming myself and telling you a bit about me in 90 seconds. To be honest I just grabbed my phone and filmed and then I watched it and totally cringed. But you know what? I have decided to go ahead and share it here anyway (feel free to not watch it, no seriously you can just pretend you never saw this post).
So I am no expert when it comes to making films of myself,
- Correct Lighting? Fail
- Good camera? Fail.
- Great sound? Fail.
- A team of beauticians and hairdressers? Fail.
- Couture Clothing? Fail.
- Me just being me? Success!!
For those of you that watched, thanks, for those of you that didn’t thanks!
Seriously though, we need to get out of our comfort zones now and then and try new things, embrace who we are. Quirks and all. Show the world who you are, you will be surprised how many people feel like you and have the same insecurities as you. We often hide our flaws, but sometimes what we see as flaws others see as something beautiful in us. Be real, be you and live authentically.
Check out the prompts below and see if you would like to link up.
Thanks for joining me, love Mac xx
